Following West Ham’s convincing 4-0 victory over Nottingham Forest, David Moyes is hopeful of receiving some positive injury updates. The win was only the team’s second in 12 Premier League games, and January signing Danny Ings scored his first two goals for the club.
Declan Rice and Michail Antonio also contributed to lifting the Hammers out of the relegation zone. However, there were injuries to right-back Vladimir Coufal and goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski, who both had to be substituted, and midfielder Lucas Paqueta suffered another blow to his problematic shoulder.
Hammers boss said: “Vladimir Coufal’s got a bit of a heel injury, he’s been feeling a bit on his heel but I didn’t think it was quite that bad, but he had to come off with it at half-time”.
“You’ve probably seen Lukasz’s eye is quite bad. I think we’re more worried about his eye socket area, that sort of thing. I’ve had a look, he seems OK. Obviously it’s come up very quickly and it’s black and blue.”
“Paqueta went down with his shoulder where he’s had the problems, so I sort of thought, ‘oh, here we go again.’ But he seemed to come through it quite well and did a lot of good things and things we really like.”
